The Lynch Mob Lives On
Putting together the special George Lynch supplement and videos for our October issue’s “PG Experience: George
Lynch” was a blast—he’s a genuinely cool guy with tone to spare. When the issue came out, so did the George Lynch fans.

I was blown away when I got the mag in the
mail yesterday. Nice to see GL getting some
The spread on George Lynch was good,
including the online interviews. I saw Dokken
a few times in the eighties, but haven’t seen
any of them since (other than Jeff Pilson in
Rock Star). Hell, in some of George’s PG
pictures, he’s looks like Schwarzenegger’s
smaller brother or close cousin… it seems
that the years have been good to George.
Now there’s an old dude that truly rocks.
Just wanted to thank you for the George
Lynch supplement. It was excellent. I think
GL is one of the best ever and does not get
the credit he deserves.
I first heard about this amp [“Carr Raleigh
Review”] shortly after it was released, and
decided to give one a test drive. I took my
Suhr up to Indoor Storm (Raleigh, NC) and
gave it a ride. I was immediately impressed
with the clarity of the clean tones on both
the single coils and the bridge humbucker.
Once on the Drive channel I was blown away
by the crunch and tone at such acceptable
volumes. I ordered one right then and there,
and am eagerly awaiting its arrival. This
little amp walks softly, but speaks with a big
Singing Campellone’s Praises
Thank you very much for running this article on
Mark Campellone [“To Make the Wood Sing”].
I am familiar with his guitars and believe he
can justifiably be proud of them. He makes no
exaggerations in this great interview. His guitars
truly do look beautiful, sound wonderful, have
“Gibson-esque” qualities, and are the most consistently well-made guitars I have ever encountered. Period. I hope he continues to make
guitars for years to come so that others can
experience their inherent beauty and quality.
It’s funny with all the stories that have been
printed about Randy and his guitars over the
years, this is the first one I’ve ever read that
really tells the whole story of Randy’s iconic gui-
tars and the men who built them [“The Guitars
of Randy Rhoads,” Web Exclusive]. My compli-
ments to Mr. Ganaden for a superb article, and
to Premier Guitar for posting it!

No, Thank You
You guys have a great mag. It shows me new
items and teaches me new things which some-
times create good ideas. I just wanted to brag
a little on my new Gibson LP Goldtop Deluxe.
I’ve had a few Standards and Customs, and this
is the finest guitar I’ve owned. People say mini-
humbuckers can’t scream with tone. Well, that’s
like saying PG isn’t the best mag I’ve ever read.
They do, and it is.
I love this magazine and have read the issue
cover to cover like three times now. You guys
have created the perfect magazine for pro-
fessionals and guys like me. When I see guys
like Jeff from Budda Amplification, Analog
Mike, etc. writing articles, then all of the
other very helpful articles and eye candy…
You have done a fantastic job of rounding up
the best of the best for your articles. It really
is the absolute best magazine ever for seri-
ous guitarists like me.

There is nothing I can afford in the way of
guitars you cover. I’m going to have to steal
or win my next guitar and amp. Companies
like Gibson, Eastman, Gretsch—the list is
so numerous—they have priced themselves
out of the market. The guitar I’d really like
is a Byrdland; the Gibson is eight grand,
the Epiphone is nearly two grand. Pricing is
cutting back on the amount of talent—you
either have to be a millionaire or an estab-
